A Very Special Cookbook

Posted on January 13, 2012 11:31 am under Food

When grandchildren were asked to select keepsakes from my grandparents estate, the first thing I requested was my maternal grandmother’s recipe box. That was twenty-five years ago and her favorite recipes show signs of intensive use. Food spatters, fading ink and tattered edges have convinced me that I need to find another way to keep them preserved. I think that I have found it.

The Cookbook Project lets you create your own family cookbook, including cover, section dividers and a variety of recipe layouts. Best of all, it can be used collaboratively. Even family members separated by hundreds of miles can share in creating their family heritage cookbook. I didn’t see this in time to request it as a Christmas present, but I may gift it to myself.

I think it would make a wonderful Valentine gift for those who love to cook and a completed cookbook would make a perfect gift next Christmas.
